About Us

Horse welfare Inc was formed to support and co-ordinate the rehabilitation and rehousing of horses in Australia. Horses who may have been neglected, left behind, forgotten, mistreated or simply unable to be cared for by their owners.

Not all of these horses come from homes where they were not loved. In fact, a large percentage of horses in the current climate are victims of drought or flooding in parts of our country. Their families are suffering, livelihoods are being threatened and the horses are simply victims passed on by regretful owners. Others come from homes where their owners were simply not educated appropriately in the care or management of horses. And sadly, some do come from backgrounds of complete neglect, abandonment and careless breeding programs.

Over the years we have managed horses from:

  • Neglected backgrounds
  • Overbreeders
  • Slaughter yards
  • Sale Yards
  • Abandoned paddocks
  • RSPCA & Council
  • Owners unable to manage
  • Trainers wanting a better future for slower steeds

Horse Welfare Inc is committed to educating the wider community of alternate options for our equine friends and providing greater opportunities for horses into the future. We are a "Tax Concession Charity" and "Deducitble Gift Recipient". We also have approval to conduct fundraisers from OLGR.

For more information please see our constitution document here.

Our Committee consists of:

  • President - Jo Briggs
  • Secretary - Rachael Prummel
  • Treasurer - Diane Haines
  • Field Officer - Marina Kijl, Rachael Prummel, Jo Briggs
  • Volunteers - Deb Lawson, Jo Baker
